In the 21st century, their descendants are still prevalent in Mexico, Guatemala, Ecuador, Peru, Bolivia, and the upper reaches of the Amazon River in the Andes Mountains.

British, French, and Dutch interlopers followed, and in the 20th century, the United States had a profound impact across the region.
